Soya Bean is the preferred oilseed after groundnuts of which India is the largest producer. Around 3-5 million tons of soya meal is produced in India annually. Soya bean production requires right weather and temperatures. The animal feed sector accounts for the highest demand of a whopping 98%. Pests, diseases and epidemics affecting the cattle and poultry have an unfavourable effect on the price of Soya. The prices of maize, jowar and bajra are the other determinants of the price of the soya meal products.
